The Cabbagetown Initiative Community Development Corporation (CICDC) is a 501(c) 3 non-profit corporation. The CICDC was established by the Cabbagetown Neighborhood Improvement Association in 1999 to oversee the creation of a park in the heart of Cabbagetown. The Cabbagetown community has created an inviting, shared green space that promises to enhance the quality of life in the Cabbagetown community.
Currently the CICDC, in cooperation with the City of Atlanta, maintains the Cabbagetown Community Center located at 177 Estoria Street, the Cabbagetown Park, and the Cabbagetown Community Garden. In 2008, the CICDC helped the neighborhood’s tornado victims by raising and redistributing relief funds to neighborhood applicants. The CICDC regularly organizes neighborhood public safety, clean-up, and beautification projects, which help combat vandalism and crime. The CICDC manages Chomp and Stomp, Cabbagetown’s neighborhood bluegrass and chili festival.
The mission of the Cabbagetown Initiative Community Development Corporation, Inc. is to enhance the quality of life in the Cabbagetown community by empowering neighbors to act collectively for community development.
The Cabbagetown Initiative is managed by a board. Board Members serve 2-year terms, with a two-term limit. After the term limit is reached, a Board Member may be re-elected to the Board after a waiting period of two years. Elections are held in May of each year.
